ROI & La Bella Donna - Join Forces to Help the Victims of the Las Vegas Shooting

All of us at ROI are getting last minute preparations ready for ISPA 2017 Las Vegas! We look forward to seeing everyone there! 

While this is an exciting time of year in our spa world, it is a very somber time for the rest of the world.  The events that happened a few weeks ago in Vegas will last in our memories for years to come. In an effort to do what we can, ROI will be joining forces with La Bella Donna in giving back to the Las Vegas Victim's Fund. A portion of the proceeds from any opening order will be donated to the fund & ROI will match that donation. We hope you will all join us to help this amazing, yet devasted community. Thoughts and prayers are important, but action is what makes the biggest difference and most impact.  We look forward to coming together in the next few days.  Safe travels to Las Vegas!

Fall is in the Air!

“Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being’s suffering. Nothing. Not career, not wealth, not intelligence, certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we are going to survive with dignity.”   
~ Audrey Hepburn


Audrey's words really hit home with all of us at ROI this past month.  Watching Harvey, Irma, and Maria take over peoples everyday lives.  Seeing the people of Mexico in despair and heartache over the devastating earthquake, we have to stand up and help.  Join us by getting involved. for the victims of our U.S. hurricanes.  Shop on Amazon to send supplies to those in need.  Mexican Red Cross Wishlist:  We appreciate you for making a difference at a time when the world needs ALL of us to help each other.

We have a lot to be grateful for as we start October.  There's an amazing new team member at ROI who brings strong retail experience with a joyful energy: Amy Humbracht.  Our favorite show of the year is coming up in less than 3 weeks: ISPA in Las Vegas.  And of course, it's Halloween!  Let us know what costume you plan to wear this year?

We want to hear from you! As we start the Fall season, what products are your favorite for this time of year?

Why It's Important to Build a Personal Brand -- and How You Can Do It

Building a personal brand is like building a new building or a home.  The foundation is one of the most important things!  It sets the stage for how strong and successful your brand will be for years to come.  Another important factor is how a personal brand resinates with others and tells someone why they want to work with you or not.  Make sure it's something special.
